Batman Incorporated was one of the few series that didn’t sway to far from its original story after the New 52 relaunch, just continuing the same story with the altered elements of the new continuity and characters into the series. The series has not only continued to deliver, but featured one of the biggest blows to the Bat-family with eh end of the Talia War arc. Now fans can bring home this epic finale with Batman Incorporated Volume 2: Gotham’s Most Wanted featuring the highly publicized death of a major character.
The series continues to delve into the world that Batman has created featuring various Batman aligned characters across the world. In this collection Batman and his allies must strengthen their resolve as Leviathan moves against Gotham City. Everything since issue #1 has been leading to the tragic moment in which Damian Wayne pays the ultimate price in the war against crime! This series continues to be one of the more intriguing thanks to the multitude of characters that are included in the Batman Incorporated network. These issues take readers on the final trek to the end of this war between Batman and Talia and while the sacrifice ticked a lot of people off it was a welcome direction to give it the impact it needed. The beginning of this series was a bit all over the place on some level and there are some remnants of that here, but thankfully it finds its stride pretty fast and delivers everything you could want. While this story isn’t as dark as some, it is pretty violent and takes some pretty dark turns that are sure to affect Batman for years to come. Chris Burnham’s art brings the great story that Grant Morrison has crafted to life in an old school way that conveys all the pain and suffering that this story brings.
This is yet another in a long line of the great Batman stories that DC has been delivering since the New 52 re-launch. Not all of the characters in the Batman Incorporated line up are all that interesting, but it does give it a new playground for creators to enjoy. This collection not only features issues 7-13 and Batman Incorporated Special # 1, but also a gallery of the variant covers from various artists.
